Of starts, stops, and the ever changing world of podcasting
It seems like only yesterday I was gung-ho and excited about doing something new in the podcasting space that would make some real, fundamental, and long-lasting change, driving podcasting forward.
But in reality, it was more than a year ago that I set up this newsletter and your expectations. Sorry about that.
A lot of things have changed in podcasting since then. I’d even argue that most of those changes have been or will be for the betterment of podcasting. Some of us played roles in those changes. But it didn’t happen under the Advancing Podcasting banner.
To that end, I’m retiring said Advancing Podcasting banner. For now, at least. I’m still very committed to the cause, but without the bandwidth to wrangle a working group. Hopefully, some organizations that have cropped up in the year since I last sent out a note will have the bandwidth to take a more active role.
In the meantime, we all do what we can. Personally, I’m keeping the flame of making podcasting better over at Podcast Pontifications, my daily short-format podcast that gives you things to think about rather than tell you what to do. Bonus: you can get it right in your inbox via another snazzy Substack newsletter!
Of course, you can always connect with me on Twitter. Sure, I’m on all the other platforms as well. But I’m most active there.
Stay safe. Stay well. And keep on Advancing Podcasting.
